HOUSTON, April 30 (Reuters) – Allen Stanford, the Texas billionaire facing civil fraud charges, attempted to turn himself in at the federal courthouse in Houston on Thursday but was turned away because there is no warrant for his arrest, his lawyer said.

Remember, this is a man who still claims that he’s innocent. If you’re innocent, and there’s no warrant out for your arrest, what on earth are you doing trying to turn yourself in?
